Their way of life is threatened as the conditions around them change, slowly but inevitably. Hunting becomes increasingly difficult as animals become scarce, and the ice around them begins to melt earlier with every year.Nanook and Sedna dream of reuniting with their daughter Ága, who left a long time ago. When Sedna’s health deteriorates, Nanook decides to fulfil her wish and embarks on a long journey to find Ága.
